You must go to the Lost Child! You must rescue my son and bring him back to me!
A strange and unfathomable demand, uttered by an enigmatic Frenchman on the eve of Christmas, 1852 will cause Captain Tor Petersen and the crew of the Ellyan to embark upon a long and perilous voyage--a journey that will take them from the placid waters of the Caribbean and plunge them deep into the lawless jungles of French Guiana. There they will confront marauding natives, soldiers and escaped slaves, even death itself. At the end of their quest lies a fortune in gold and the realization of their dreams; and perhaps for Tor himself, something he has long sought but never found...a thing more precious than any glittering metal.
The Lost Child is a tale of romance and high adventure, based on a legend of the Caribbean, one that that may indeed have its roots buried in truth. The story is set in a historic time period underscored by periods of conflict and transformation, including moments that will force each of the Ellyan's crew to confront deep and abiding changes in themselves--a challenge not so far different from our own era.
